On tap.

A- golden colored with slight amber hue. Lots of carbonation, medium lacing, and a nice white, frothy head about a finger width tall.

S- nice citrus and floral scent with some orange zest, grapefruit, and flowers up front as well as some pine and resin. Hops give way to quite a malty backbone with hints of biscuits and some caramel.

T- nice hop flavor of the fruits blending nicely with the pine and malts. Perhaps a little too much malt for my liking but balanced nonetheless. The swallow is crisp and clean with a small bitter bite on the finish.

M- medium bodied for an IPA with a nice creaminess. Carbonation present and the finish is crisp and refreshing with a nice IPA bite to it.

O- this is great beer when it's drank fresh. I've noticed a few different FW IPAs fall off pretty quick with time and this can be one if them. Fresh it's delicious, but after a couple months this becomes a malt bomb.

Notes on this tasting were from bottles 6 months old (according to bottle dating), so take that into consideration.

Appearance: Hazy amber-golden, with a nice big head of off-white suds. Detailed but fuzzy lace.

Aroma: Pungent pineapple, tropical, pine hops. Very appealing!

Taste: Strong, with plenty of bitter citrus and pine hops. A little bitter and warm at the finish, but overall this is an exceptionally well-balanced imperial IPA, as the malts keep this heavy-handed triple-dry-hopped brew in check. Would love to try one fresher (maybe one day Firestone Walker will distribute to Indiana).

Pours a honey orange with a 2 finger thick white foam head. Smells of orange blossom, citrus, light pine. Sweet orange and pine, sweet malts. Medium/light carbonation, aftertaste of sweet and spicy pine. Outstanding beer from beginning to end.
